“After the “Macedonian operations” in the Balkans there remain two large gaps – Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Serbia, – underlined in the original text experts, published in the “Bulletin of the Diplomatic Academy of the MFA of Russia. Russia and the world”. – The question of the self-proclaimed and partially recognized Republic of Kosovo stands out. Pristina is focused on joining the Alliance, but this is unlikely to happen in the foreseeable future. And not only because the four countries of the bloc (Greece, Spain, Romania, Slovakia) and Serbia do not recognize this lesion, but in virtue of the presence near the town of uroševac ultramodern American military base Camp Bondsteel. At the same time, the Kosovo question, however, for various reasons, burden future Atlantic integration for both Belgrade and Sarajevo, which is an obstacle to the creation of a space NATO – Yugoslavia”.

the Scientists highlighted the fact that the space of the former Yugoslavia – turbulent zone of the world policy arena, the clash of cultures, of religions, of the struggle of the great powers. “Currently, there is a superposition of several processes that form a mutually exclusive and complementary vectors of development, they say. – On the one hand, the Euro-Atlantic structures seeking to definitively solve the problem of natoinal South-Eastern Europe, including all former republics of Yugoslavia in the structure of the Alliance.

Given direct support to Albanian separatism Anglo-Saxon bloc, beginning with the First world war, the scenario will be implemented with the direct support from the USA, UK and other countries – members of NATO. All of these processes aimed at the final solution to the “Serbian question” and the minimization, and ideally – on the reduction to zero of the Russian cultural-humanitarian, economic (primarily energy), military-technical and political presence in the region. Considering all the above, in the medium term policy of military neutrality of Serbia in conjunction with the preservation morepolitically of subjectivity Republika Srpska is seen as the only opportunity to prevent the complete absorption of this region of the machine of NATO and final dive of the Balkans in futurearchitect. For Russia’s support of Serbian aspirations means to ensure the region’s balance of forces and interests”.
